When playing a game, the goal is to win, but it is the goal that is important, not the winning

Discuss.

Ok, ok, largely I kid, but this was a comment that came out during a game today, and we all felt it kind of funny and... strangely... maybe... it actually holds some small amount of water.

Nope, nothing like it save that it uses a board with a grid and it's tile based.

I'm with Dave on this one.

No similarity.

For example, the secret conditons of the menu cards means that you are playing your tiles 'into space'. Maybe you are jacking your opponents or maybe you are setting them up for big points. You just don't know. Also, if you don't draw the right menu cards then you could just be plain jacked - and having to re-draw them just puts you that much further behind. The hidden information and random draw of tiles in T&E just doesn't compare to the whole menu thing.

Wasabi felt more to me like Jambo.

No, I don't think it's T&E lite. It's more Monopoly extreme ...

It's really just like Operation.

"Is it anything like Monopoly?"












I'm sorry. Someone had to.

Other than both being tile laying games, the games are completely different. There is nothing even remotely similar about them.
